You know it's pretty Italian when the barman doesn't seem to speak a word of Hungarian. This delightful place on the South shore of Lake Balaton has the right feeling. The owner is continually circulating making sure things are running well and often escorts customers to the door when they decide to depart. When the waiters pass, they scan to see if anyone is in need of anything. When a pizza is out of the oven, a bell rings and the waits staff literally runs to get it to the table. When someone leaves, the entire staffs bellows "Arrivederci!" We came for a late lunch on a Tuesday and found the place quite busy. Within two minutes there was some freshly made crostini on the table. The menu covers a broad range including many vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. (The crust on the gluten free pizza is better than the regular crust!) I started with a salad of burrata (special ball form of mozzarella with a creamy interior) with cherry tomatoes and fresh greens. It was simple and delicious. I also sampled the tomato soup, typical of Hungarian Italian restaurants, which produce a slightly chunky tomatoes puree rather than the creamy basil flavoured bisque featured in many other places. I decided to try a pizza: walnuts and gorgonzola with added capers and mushrooms. The crust isn't exactly Napolitano. It was crispy like a cracker. There was more mozzarella than gorgonzola, but it was still delicious. For once someone toasted the walnuts before putting them on a pizza. Most places omit this step, thinking no doubt that the heat of the pizza oven will toast the dust. This is always a mistake; it doesn't. So that was a real flavour boost. The crust on my friend's gluten free pizza was better. (It is amazing how good these have gotten.) For dessert I decided to try the zuppa inglese. Now I am a great fan of zabaglione. Zuppa inglese has generous quantities of this sherried custard mixed with chunks of cake and, in this case, blobs of what looked like chocolate mousse. The whole thing was covered in grocery store, cocoa based chocolate sauce (!) and was garnished with canned, gassed up whipped cream (tsk, tsk!). I couldn't really taste the zabaglione for all the chocolate sauce. So this dessert needs work and a little more care. It really doesn't take that long to whip genuine cream, especially for this price. There were too many shortcuts. My friend's gluten free pear cake was good. And the coffee afterwards was first rate. Overall, it was a lovely lunch in the right atmosphere. There were some nice touches of technique and also several items that were wanting. I will certainly give this place another look the next time I am in the area.
Ordered two pizzas, one was OK (diavola with extra ham), the other one not (bolognese with extra hair). Friendly service otherwise.

As in topic they serve very nice pizza thin cake and lot of additions. Best thing is that they use classic wooden fire furnace - if you never try such pizza you definitely should taste is much different from standard electric one. If you are are not a fun of pizza don't worry they also have sea food. Generally greater place with delicious pizza for reasonable place. They speek German, English and of course Hungarian ;)Enjoy

Located in a nice area (check website), awesome terrace, small playground for kids. Friendly and nice atmosphere, really relaxing. The time we visited was just nice, some sun, not too hot, terrace was perfect. We had prawns for starter, is Ok (dont expect as fresh you'de be seaside), cost 7EUR. Then pizzas with homemade tomato sauce which is awesome. Pizzas from 4-5EUR. Beer on tap (large) 2,5EUR.We reserved a table in advance (for dinner, 6pm), which turned out to be a good idea as others like the place too.Staff really friendly and helpful, lots of smiles. Warmly recommend the place!

We stopped by on a blistering hot day and the mister outside was wonderful. We shared a pizza and it was very good. We had a couple of cold draft beer while looking up the stairs to the Abby. Great location next to the drop off place for the trolley train. Service was very good as were the prices.

We were here for late dinner in May 2018, so the main season was just at the beginning. Not many people in any of the restaurants in Tihany. We have ordered two chicken salads, glass of wine and wheat beer called Edelweis. We get small pizza thingies aside the salads. They were really good, so we wanted to order another portion of them. Waitress said it is not possible. Well, ok, no problem.. though I would think you can be little creative if guest asks for something you don´t have on the menu... Another problem was when we ordered another pair of drinks. Waitress brought us normal Soproni beer in Edelweiss glass. My friend said it is not Edelweiss, waitress said "Oh my god" and rolled her eyes. OK, sorry for being so rude to be a guest who knows the difference between beer and beer :/ She brought the right beer and since that moment no one came to our table to ask if we want to order anything else. Only when I wanted to pay, another waitress came.It was really bad experience. I know the season is just beginning, you do not have many guests, which may made you a bit nervous, but ... hey, your guests are bringing your salary in their wallet.

The selection for everything is huge. Coffee specialities, the lemonades full of fruits, teas, and every kind of European food you desire. We visited several times, and everything was excellent and generous portions. Pizza, pasta, soup, lemonade, coffee, meat dishes, desserts ... Could not find anything to complain about.

A disappointing family meal here. The goulash was adequate if not anything special but was only luke-warm. The gyros platter wasn't bad but the fries it came with were again verging on cold.However it was our daughter's pizza that was the worst part of the meal, as it had a weird soggy base, and I suspect it's maybe purchased already made and reheated as it didn't taste like it had seen the induce of an oven! There's lots of good pizza in the area for similar prices (Bistro Pub-lik across the road is a hundred times better for example) so this was a huge disappointment. It wasn't particularly busy when we went, being a Thursday evening, so cold food and soggy pizza is really unacceptable I'm afraid. Not a place we will ever be returning to when there's much better options nearby.

After spending two days in Siofok we have decided to go home not directly to highway, but to use the "old" road close to the Balaton lake. I still rememer how dense the traffice was before the highwas. Now it is a quite a good raod with a normal traffic - even in the peak season. And then a famous question. Where to stop and eat? As it usually happened pasing nearby a house with clear marks that it is italian food in there (our children asked to go for pizzas before we have managed to stop (a sign 100 meters before will be great). We have all eating pizzas of all kind. It was a small mass when ordering food, but not a big deal to be mentioned in details. Good food and good value for the price. I have to add that there is a beautifull view on the green grass carpet before the resaturant. It is making an illusion that it is nearbye the lake. When going closer you can see, that you are on the kind of a cliff. Bellow is the railway and some buldings......I will remember that place. And that it is not always the highway the best way to move from place to place.

We were there on a beautiful Saturday in April, when everything but this restaurant was still closed. The place was practically full but we got a table for four people. The waiters were very kind and the service was fast. The food quality was a bit above mediocre. The size of the portions was also correct and the price was acceptable.All in all we left the place satisfied.
